John Herbert "Marlene Richdiet"

Monologue, unpublished.

  John Herbert
Marlene Title pic A comic monologue in one act.

A drag queen (female impersonator) who has admired and copied his idol, Marlene Dietrich, for thirty years or more, has reached middle age and has put on weight. As he realises that food has become more important to him than sex, he changes his 'drag' name to Marlene Richdiet and rhapsodises about the pleasures of eating at good restaurants and about his own cooking of good food. As he compares the realities of his aging process to the trials of his youth, we discover the ways in which an adventurous character learned to survive as a gay man in a world that offered mostly opposition to his best efforts in his chosen art.
